It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Toronto, so a shared nod and grimace to all those hunting for the pain medication after spending the weekend shoveling snow and punishing those long dormant snow shoveling muscles. Eggnog is your friend.

As a belated Christmas present we'll be giving away a Nexus 7 Android tablet to the best Android article in December. You have 2 weeks to get your article in, though I don't recommend a last minute December 31 caffeine fueled slamfest to get it completed. The outcome could be messy given the results of our latest survey.

In the meantime head on over to Learn/Android and dive in. There's a lot to learn but it's worth it.

cheers,
Chris Maunder

    In-The-Wild Testing: How to Ensure Your Apps Work in the Real World

    Is your new app designed for testers who constantly update their devices the minute a new platform version is available? Was it designed for developers who spend most of their time in a well-connected office? Probably not. Then why would you rely on a similar environment to test your apps when that’s not where your end users actually are? The only way to launch apps that consistently work in the hands of users and meet their expectations – apps that are functional, reliable, secure and intuitive from the very first download – is to move a...
